Late last week I noticed that the international grocery store down the street had received their shipment of real Christmas trees. There were several lined up outside the florist shop in the parking lot. Today when I walked by there were only about three left. This totally shocks me and I’d really like to know who buys them. They are beautiful but you have to look at the price tag and understand that 47,250 Yen=$560.80! This is for a tree that is going to die and lose all of it’s needles in a few short weeks. Crazy!
